A fashionable venue blessed with a convenient midtown location just off the city's iconic central avenue, this restaurant is noted for its creative seasonal tapas assortmentgourmet Portuguese petiscos that celebrate the very best of Iberian cuisine with selections like refreshing melon gazpacho with Iberian ham and mint marinated carrillera, puff pastry stuffed with chicken sausage, and crunchy cuttlefish bathed in a smooth tartar sauce. The choice extends to pimentos de padrón (grilled baby green peppers) and pica-pau de Buey (fried beef tenderloin pieces). The eatery is housed in a building designed by noted architect Manuel Norte Junior, a project that won the coveted Valmor Prize for Architecture in 1915.
- Tapas: "Try the Menu Solomillo de Buey, tasty highlights of which are the lightly melted chèvre cheese and the grilled beef sirloin."
- Best for Tapas Because: A contemporary restaurant environment housed within a building of architectural merit, Rubro projects a casual yet sophisticated where Spain shakes hands with Portugal.
